This conversation can continue. Last I recall conversations were revolving around symbolism in Superman (which can be started in a new thread BTW), and someone mentioned Wolfgang Petersen.
Do your do !

Is that the guy who directed Air Force One? If it is then he has my vote.

Apparently Jonathan Frakes might sit in the director's chair after finishing the Thunderbirds movie. Before I might have thought he would be okay for a choice of director after Star Trek First Contact, but given his lack of respect for the Thunderbirds franchise, I don't think this is such good news for Superman.
Meoww! Send in the clowns!

I declare time behind that there was fanatical of Superman's comics...

Richard Donner did an outstanding job I felt with Superman The Movie. It still holds up surprisingly well 25 years after it's release. Why not have him do it?
08-05-2003, 09:16 PM
Well, Donner has his time and made his great Superman. Why not let someone else get a shot?
I honestly have no clue. One guess would be the Wachowskis. I'd love to see the Wachowski's make any comic book into movie. Plus you gotta have Bill Pope with them.

Robert Zemeckis? I just can't stand why they never approached him for Superman. He is a comic-book reader, knows how to handle FX and humor and is a very good director....
08-26-2003, 09:13 AM
definately robert Zemeckis and if they get him they should get bob gale for the screenplay and story.
both are comic readers, they have done some brilliant filsm together (back to the future) they can do film series well and zemekis has lots of experience with special effects.
comeon.... get the guys behind back to the future to do superman
hell they could even get christopher lloyed to play jor el

Here is some more speculation about a possible director
09-18-2003, 08:12 PM
I like M. Night Shammalamma. Unbreakable is my favorite movie of his. Would he be the best for Supes? I dunno. His movies have had a slow, deliberate pace to them. He'd have to change his style a little I think.
09-19-2003, 02:31 AM
Yea if M. Night can pick up the pace an d make an aciton movie, yeah I think he would be nice. I love his cinematography and directing. Though this would be different for him. If he can not have the slowness, whcih I didn't mind and was rather nice in his other films, then he could work. So, no scenes panning back and forth on a train with no cuts. It worked for the tone and pace of UNbreakable, but Superman needs a faster pace. I hope it's somewhere between his previous movies and the ADD music video fest McG would ahve made.
09-19-2003, 05:31 PM
Donner used long panning scenes with no cuts in Superman. That scene where Clark asks Lois if she'd like to get together with him, she bails on him, and he misses his elevator is all one long shot. The shot of Clark and his mom in the field outside the farm. Donner was a huge fan of long shots. But I know what you're saying. Though his shots were long they were at a quicker pace, whereas Shyamalan is very methodical, slow and quiet

Why not allow someone like Jeph Loeb direct the screenplay? He's familiar with the mythos and does it justice in his work on Smallville. I see no reason as to why Mr. Loeb shouldn't be in the running, unless of course, he's disqualified himself as a director in the project. Jeph Loeb or James Cameron would be my only picks for this.
09-21-2003, 11:47 PM
Jeph Loeb direct or write you mean? Dunno why he would or could direct.
As for writing.. yeah, he writes good comics.
Bet let's look at his screen writing achievements. I caught one of them the other day. A little indie with with sharp dialogue called Cammando. Or rather SCHWARZENEGGER COMMANDO.
Tat moive had lines and plot... for me to POOP on. Ok, i kid, i kid. I'm sure Loeb is quite capable of writing better. Scripts usually get butchered, esepcailly in cheesy 80s action AHNOLD movies.

Well I finally saw Full Throttle and I really have to say NO to McG for Superman. I can't see how anyone in there right mind would want him to direct a Superman film unless they were the only people in the world that actually enjoyed Batman & Robin. Because that's what McG's Superman would be, a version of a beloved hero perverted by a director "with his own vision" who wants to spice things up. Please respect the Icons damnit.
Now, I'm not in the lynch mob of critics that hate McG. The guy has talent for filming eye candy and great action sequences(except for that first fight scene in Full Throttle--that sucked monkey nuts). I just cannot possibly take him seriously because I don't believe he takes his movies seriously. Does he deserved to be banned from C2F's? I don't think so. In fact there are a couple of C2F's I think he'd be perfect for directing. Tap this guy to direct the live action Dragonball Z movie. IMO he's the only director who could capture the humor and the action from the manga/anime phenomena. And I think the same reasoning would apply to a live action Deadpool movie.
But please, oh please, leave Kal-El alone McG. http://www.comics2film.com/UBB/cool.gif
